               === Wondolowski named MLS Player of the Month ===
 
 New York, NY (Sports Network) - San Jose Earthquakes forward Chris Wondolowski
 was  voted Major League Soccer Player of the Month for October of the 2012 MLS
 season.
 
 The  honor is Wondolowski's second consecutive MLS Player of the Month and his
 fourth  this season,  making Wondolowski the first player in league history to
 capture the award four times in one season.
 
 San  Jose  compiled a 1-0-2 record  during October, which was enough to clinch
 the Supporters' Shield, while Wondolowski matched the single-season record set
 by Roy Lassiter in 1996 as he took his season total to 27 goals.
 
 Wondolowski  needed five goals  to equal the mark set by Lassiter at the start
 of  the month,  and after a hat  trick against Colorado and a goal against Los
 Angeles,  the striker  scored against Portland in the final game of the season
 to tie the record.
 
 The award is selected each month of the regular season by journalists from the
 North American Soccer Reporters.
